Ring-closing metathesis of heteroatom-substituted dienes

Brown, R.C.D. and Satcharoen, V. (2006) Ring-closing metathesis of heteroatom-substituted dienes Heterocycles, 70, pp. 705-736.

Record type: Article


The ring-closing metathesis (RCM) of dienes that contain at least one participating heteroatom-substituted olefin is reviewed (olefins substituted with O, N, S, P, Si, B, and halogen atoms will be considered). Efforts have been made to include as many relevant examples of RCM of heteroatom-substituted dienes as possible, but due to the increasing volume of research in this area, an exhaustive coverage is not intended. Attention has focussed on diene RCM reactions catalysed by ruthenium and molybdenum alkylidene complexes, although a brief discussion of some ring-closing reactions of titanium alkylidene species is provided. Other metathesis reactions such as enyne RCM, cross-metathesis and ROMP are not included.
